Office of Administrative Hearings

The Office of Administrative Hearings provides fair and timely hearings, similar to non-jury trials in a court of law. They determine different issues for individuals affected by the Department's actions with the following:

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP),
  • Medical Assistance,
  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF),
  • Child Care Services, 
  • Child Protection Services: Central Registry for Child Abuse and Neglect, 
  • Low Income Energy Assistance, and
  • Child Support Enforcement.

The Office of Administrative Hearings provides an efficient way of ensuring those affected by our decisions have access to due process of law.
